MAN THREATENED BOUNCER AND FOUGHT DAD:
A MAN who was on cocaine and wearing a knuckle duster when he threatened a bouncer has been jailed for 12 months.
David Lee Alan Owen, of Amlwch, had been watching Wales’ rugby victory over England with his family on the afternoon of February 23.
His dad managed to calm him down and walk him away from the Market Tavern pub in Amlwch after the confrontation, at around 10.30pm that night.
But he then ended up fighting with his dad.
Judge Huw Rees Owen, sitting at Caernarfon crown court, told him: “You are old enough and mature enough to discipline yourself.”
Owen, 27, of Bethesda Street, Amlwch, was ordered to forfeit the knuckle duster. He was banned from all Anglesey pubs for two years.
His defence barrister Elen Owen said it had been a happy day marred by too much alcohol. She added: “He has a real problem with his behaviour after he has been drinking alcohol. He has an unenviable record. But imprisonment hasn’t worked for this young man.”
Speaking after the sentencing, North Wales Police Constable Dylan James Thomas said: “We welcome today’s sentence. This was a particularly nasty incident, which happened in a busy location in Amlwch where members of the public had attended to watch a rugby match.
“Owen is a prolific offender and this sort of behaviour will not be tolerated. His sentence will have a massive impact locally.”
